Blue Boar was a classic "American/English" blend, made by the American Tobacco Company. It was made of different cuts and types of Burley with bright Virginia and a light touch of Latakia. The MATCH version of Blue Boar combines rough cut white Burley, white cube Burley and a ribbon-cut toasted Burley, with golden Virginia and just the right amount of smoky Cyprian Latakia. This blend is an all-day type of blend, with just enough Latakia influence to be interesting, while not overpowering the palate. Transport yourself back in time with a modern interpretation of an iconic blend with MATCH Blue Boar.

I have never smoked the original Blue Boar, so I cannot do a comparison. I find this tobacco to be smooth and mellow. It's easy to smoke and stays lit well enough. I taste a toasty, woody, sweetness with the latakia in the background and not overwhelming as many latakia blends are. There is a subtle but pleasant nuttiness that seems to come and go throughout the smoke. The sweetness has a dark fruitiness to it that's pleasant and mild. Easily repeatable and mild enough to be an all day smoke. I will give this 3 stars.

I ordered this one a year or two ago after visiting with blender Russ O. at the Las Vegas Show where he was discussing some of his match blends with other pipers. Since my table was next to his, I could eavesdrop without appearing to do so.

It has been eons since I tried the original and judging this one one its own merit, well, it was downright good! I liked the light hand peekaboo of the Latakia employed and the depth of the slightly sweet and not very stout Virginia worked well together, and stayed out of the way of the nutty presentation of the Burley. Sort of an all day smoke for those who enjoy the laid back American style English of days gone by.

Very straightforward bold burley mixture with some Latakia smokey aroma and lots of tangy bright Virginia. The toasted burley is the key star and nutty.

Not very smooth but there is no bite, sometimes comes a touch of harsh edge.

Not bad. Two and a half stars.

I never smoked the original, so this is not a comparison. The aroma from the pouch was chocolate. The notes from P&C said it contains Latakia. It must be a very small percentage of the mixture as I couldn't detect any. What does seem dominant is "black Cavendish". (In hindsight it was almost reminiscent of Captain Black White.)
